Guns of Airwolf

According to the computer readout seen during Season 1, Airwolf's offensive weapons include 40mm Cannons and .50 caliber Chain Guns mounted on each side in addition to its rocket pods. The machine guns were shown to have telescoping barrels, which allowed them to be stowed away when the helicopter configured itself to fly supersonic.
